Medical research at BGU covers the spectrum of human health, with emphasis on neurosciences, diabetes, cardio metabolic health, and cancer.

BGU is an important player in the international bio-medical research arena. Pioneering research is conducted by highly respected senior faculty, a cadre of young scientists returning to Israel from prestigious institutions, and exceptional graduate and postgraduate research fellows. Collaborations between the health, natural and engineering sciences foster an environment of research innovation. BGU’s commitment to community is reflected in research focusing on the health problems of the Negev, especially in the fields of genetics, nutrition and psychiatry.

“Until now, medicine didn’t have anything to offer kids, but this [BGU’s development] is revolutionary. It’s a Nobel Prize-level discovery.”
– Andy David, Israel’s consul general to the Pacific Northwest
